COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George American Brown Ale is the typical American take on a classic English style. This beer exhibits an assertive American hop character overlying a malty richness which lends it a slightly sweet, toasty flavor and aroma. Dark brown in color with a thick tan head our American Brown Ale is a brewed from a full malt base and is well balanced by a spicy/citrusy hop bitterness.

Bottle. Pours blackish ruby with sizeable beige head. The aroma is caramel, a hint of licorice, a hint of molasses. The flavor is caramel and burnt sugar, mixed bar nuts, and light syrup. The finish is clean and sweet, with a touch of earthy hops into the aftertaste. Not bad, really.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep ruby brown hue. Syrupy malt y with a cocoa cookie aroma. Medium bodied with smooth malts. Nice bright hop finish. Caramel and cookie malt flavors. Zesty and zippy malts. Medium effervescence. Piney and spicy hops. Touch of that cola nuance. Hint of dark dried fruits. Good toasty flavor. Good stretching dryness. Balnced between the malts and hops. Between the initial palate to the finish, from the sweet to the dry. Enjoyed this brew!

Deep brown pour with a thin brown head. Chocolate, molasses, toasted malts, milk aroma. Medium, smooth body. Chocolate flavor with toasted malt, molasses, biscuit, and a lightly herbal, fruity hop finish. Light bitterness. Very nice, full fledged brown.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Aroma is pretty nutty and mildly sweet. Dark brown with slight red hues and a thumb thick slowly fading tan head. Flavor is mildly toasted malt int he fore with some sweet and nuttier malt in the middle and finish. Thicker than many porters I have had. Very solid Brown Ale.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep chestnut brown with a nice half inch off white head that slowly settled. Aroma is dark, roasty malts, toasted nuts, caramel, and cocoa with a hint of piny hops. Flavor is well balanced between roasty, caramel malt, chocolate, and a pleasantly bitter bite of pine and floral hops through the finnish. Body is medium, with a slick, creamy texture and fizzy mouthfeel from the high carbonation.

Dark pour smells malty and rich. Taste is pretty good actually, the best bunch of my mixed 6 pack from these guys. Went down easy, cracking the next beer after it made me wish I had another one of these. Pretty good.

bubbleflubber (1983) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Deep walnut pour that had a huge brown overflowing head... quite active. The aromas are comforting, especially after warming a bit. I pick up caramel and figs, malt and syrup. The flavor is indeed "nutty", with an overlay of smoky roasts and a hint of a coffee finish. Nice malt interwoven in there, as well. Well-complementary hopped backpull is nice to round out an otherwise dull palate. Not bad overall.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 5, 2006
12 oz bottle. Mahogany pour with a beige head. Soft, nutty nose, chocolate notes are there. Nice lace. Nutty, slightly sweet flavor with hazelnut undertones. Bitter finish, a bit of chocolate. Solid offering, much better than the Tavern (nut brown).

Robust chocolate malt aroma. Very dark amber color with a medium tan head. Sweet chocolate taste with a light bitterness mixed into the finish. Creamy palate.

This is a very enjoyable Brown Ale, drinkable, enjoyable. No bad after taste... but still average taste. I may be against what St George wants... but I like something that stands out. But this is just enjoyable very enjoyable. Nice nutty smell... easy drinking.
